    Hi Guys.

    Here's an Air Traffic Controll lid,from my British collection,this one is unissued,and is very similiar in appearance to the CVC ( Combat Vehicle Crewman ) lid,they share the same shell,and have the same ballistic properties.

    Side profile,the cut outs in the shell are to allow for a communication headset.

    Never seen one of these before...

    This is made to be worn with a headset of some sort, yes?

    Hi Ben.

    Yeah,the lid is designed to be worn with headhones ,typically manafactured by Amplivox,these lids are very much the same as a US CVC lid ,worn by Tankers and the like.

    I got this one as un-issued,and was sitting on a shelf,looking all lonesome ,so I bought it....the trouble is the headphones ,are rarer than hens teeth,so it may well stay un-complete for quite a while.


    Thanks again Ben cheers
